In an America split into the genetically superior and inferior, a fiercely ambitious ballerina and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks must stop a deadly virus that is spreading quickly.

Ohio, 2135. For Davis Morrow, perfection is not an aspiration but a daily reality. Like all Superiors (Priors), Davis has been primed since conception to be smarter, stronger, and more graceful than the lowly Imperfects (Imps) who first rejected, and now are denied, the Priors’ medical advancements. A fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis is preparing for the rigorous trials that will earn her a place in the international Olympiads, and she has put her trust in her father and the protection his mayoral platform promises: total segregation of Priors and Imps. Then she meets Cole, a mysterious boy who leaves her with more questions each time he disappears. She has no idea that Cole has his own agenda: that he is in fact an Imp, a rising star in the bloody and popular underground cage-fighting tournament called the FEUDS, and that he has every reason to hate her — and that, despite all his best efforts, Cole is finding himself as drawn to Davis as she is to him.

Suddenly, Priors start disappearing. A virus is spreading. Searching for its source, Davis begins to rely more and more on the elusive Cole, and Cole in turn must question his hatred of the Priors when he discovers Davis is in more danger than anyone else from this virus that will soon consume the entire community. Can he save her? Can a ballerina and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks find the source of the deadly virus and stop it, even from across their great divide?
